This rare hand painted group hail from the Swedish town of Ekeby (also the name of the manufacturer). Recently a Swede couple visiting from that very place gasped at them upon discovery, remarking "we've never seen so much of this type of pottery in one shop...and we're from Ekeby!" This line is called esigned by Ingrid Atterberg in the 1950's. Folkloric and fabulous.
